DeVries touts benefits of engineering in dairy-cow feeding efficiency

Precision feeding technology can help ensure that dairy cows have high quality feed readily available, which results in more meals per day, more feed intake and higher milk production.

Environmentally friendly BAY – The new Alltech Dairy School concentrated on making use of know-how to make improvements to cow management and milk manufacturing.

The leadoff speaker was Professor Trevor DeVries, current study chair in Dairy Cattle Actions and Welfare at the College of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

DeVries is at the moment exploring how optimizing nutrient delivery in dairy cows can assistance satisfy market demand and maximize output with no in excess of-supplementing their feed.

He pointed out that lots of people affiliate technological innovation on 20-first century dairy farms with robotic milking, but stressed that precision dairy management also includes systems designed to automate other jobs these as cleaning, bedding, ventilation and feeding.
